Blog Love Means Never Having To Say Shut Up Already

Pop the corks, open the ice cream, do a jig! I have completed Smack My Tax Up '05! All documents are bundled and off to the accountant's, tear stains and all. This feels deceptively celebratory, even though I know I will still be spinning my accountant on my shoulders and tossing him out the window when he calculates the final amount owed. See this? This is me not caring.

I have also organized my office, helped S. with a month's worth of homework, cleaned out my vacuum filter (Did anyone else know you're supposed to do this? That little Swedish man is deceptive), and baked oatmeal bars.

Did I also mention that I managed to spend the entire day with my mother and not look at my Devil's-work-blog once?

I am feeling competent. Do you have any socks that need mending? Scrapbooks that need finishing? Any countries you need united? I'm totally up to the task.

Also, can I just say that I have THE BEST commenters EVER? Always making me laugh and making me think. Not only do you guys know just what to say, but you get that my whining is temporary.

Now. Can you talk to my husband?

I love days like that! You are probably going to get your period like tomorrow or the next day (that is what always happens to me anyway). I have a day of productive bliss and then BLAM!!!! two days of pain and suffering. Wow... I'm like Debbie Downer.

Oh, oh I need my floors to be cleaned and my filter to be changed, mostly cause I had no idea you were supposed to change the filter.Sounds like an amazing and productive day. ~sigh~ I am SO SO glad you finished your taxes and don't have to stress about doing them anymore. Way to go Lena. You rock!Tell your mom HI! Hope to see you soon.

Oh I love days like that!!! I didn't read blogs, mine or otherwise for a few days and oh how I missed you!!! If only I could smack my taxes up, life would be grand. But Why do it know, I have like a month left.

F - I prefer biotchy.BP - I didn't say what was IN the oatmeal bars.J - I will keep you posted. LOLV - I'm sure you are, so you can stop hearing about them! ;)L - Believe me, I would totally put it off until 4/14 except my business partner's family has "needs" and need their refund, blah blah blah.K - I still have Lake Arrowhead stuff to unpack. I know you think I'm kidding right now. I.Am.Not. I don't know about the bread - is it in its own box? I can tell you a story though...There once was a man from Nantucket...

Go you! you're so far ahead of the game, i haven't even bought the tax software or fought with my ex-husband about which of us gets to claim which kids. Though I do have the pertinent documents in a file for when i finally get my shiz together.

I can't find my other sneaker for a week now, do you think you could help with that?:) Husbands think we are whiners for the rest of our marriage so that is a lost cause;)

I just found you through Kelly.First off..where did that picture of the wart faced girl crying come from? Very scary. Looks like the previews for that new movie with the deformed people.Secondly...homework for preschoolers? I was a preschool teacher and the hardest homework ever was the show and tell bag they had to bring back in the next day.Lastly- LOVE Drake! I was horrified when he was in the accident! Is that weird considering I am knocking on 40?

Erm...Lena, I don't know how to say this but...Ritalin isn't the answer.HAH! Don't mind me...I just watched a Meth Abuse special on tv the other night!You get super bonus points for slaying the Tax Dragon. Can you do my taxes for me? Prease? I'll babysit?

Posted by: TheIdleReceptionist | 03/14/2006 at 10:55 AM

Congrats on getting so much done! I love days like that, when I actually feel competent and on-the-ball.Now, as for things that need doing, sure, I've got a whole bunch. Just let me get my list...
